Description

Features

Commonly known as the Snow Pear, this form of Pyrus sets itself apart from the rest with its main point of difference being the slightly glaucous foliage which gives the tree a soft, silvery green appearance when in leaf. As well as this, come Autumn, as with other forms of pyrus, the foliage puts on a vibrant show of bright red colour. The flowers are small and white and may be followed by small fruits which have a mild, sour taste. This tree has a well balanced structure and is easy to manage having a straight trunk. The grey-green leaf colour lends itself well to adding contrast and interest amongst other plants.

Comments
Best in full sun. Proving to be a tough and durable ornamental pear, smaller and markedly different in form, colour and texture to most Pyrus cultivars currently available in Australia.

Tree Care
Adaptable to a wide range of site conditions including quite dry conditions, slightly alkaline soils and air pollution. Able to handle intermittently wet, heavy soils.
